As far as the style, I was fascinated by surrealism.

We’ve always idealized youth and then destroyed youth. That has happened since the beginning of time, and I’m fascinated by why we do that.

I was completely fascinated by the studio process and layering sounds and creating soundscapes out of layering massive squalls of sound.

I love life. I’m fascinated by human behavior because that feeds back into my work.
